CALIBRATIONS: 

    - 19:30UT - we have control of the telescope! However, the sky is 100% covered by clouds.... Rob is optimistic though. 

    - 19:30UT - 2x PESSTO_bias & 1x PESSTO_calib

    - 21:00UT - SOFI_specflat, SOFI_FlatJHK (why not!)


PRE-OBSERVATIONS:

    - 23:30UT - Sunset: A-maz-ing! A green flash and highly ridiculous colours.

                     - That's primarily as we're clouded out. 

                    - Conditions: WE'RE CLOSED DUE TO CLOUD COVER

    - 00:00UT - Still closed and it looks no better - at least another 2 hours

    - 04:00UT - SOFI_specarc (why not)

    - 06:00UT - Outside looks promising, so we're going to open!


SCIENCE-OBSERVATIONS:

    - 06:25UT - SPECTROSCOPIC STANDARD: L745a: Seeing 1.4", Airmass 1.08

    - 06:50UT - LSQ14gfb: Follow-up with gm16 for 2x2700s. Seeing 1.1", Airmass 1.09

    - 08:35UT - LSQ14ggr: Classification. The sun is rapidly coming up and there is no sign of it in the acquisition image, so aborted. 


POST-OBSERVATIONS:
    - 09:00UT - Skyflats grz (g fails)

    - 09:20UT - PESSTO_calib (arcs only). This will be done in the morning.
